Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The message on the screen of my camera says CARD PROTECTED .i cannot take photos or delete any . Also the memory card will not come out of slot


Answers :

Card protected usually means the slide switch on the side of the card is in the locked position. To get the card out of most cameras (since you didn't say what your camera is) you press in on the card and it pops out. Sometimes there is a button alongside the card slot that you push in to get the card to pop out.

When I put the card back into my camera, it will not switch back to the memory card. The delete button will not delete from the internal memory, and Can not get the menu to come up.
